I can't you how many of my friends ripped out most of the wiring in their car and had no idea what to do after that. Then they would do it again with their next car. They never learned the lesson.

I've gotten pretty handy with a soldering iron in the course of my experiments :9
Have you tried radioshack, getting some clamp on style connectors? Or what is it your needing exactly?
Also, I found these while I was at AIT, they're pretty sweet.

It's called a door logo projector, it's a little projector you put in the bottom of your door, and when you open your door it projects pretty much any logo you want onto the ground.

True ... on so many levels ...

So, anyone know where Machetero went to? Haven't seen him around since I got back.
We all know that Napo is lost in the world of writing ... getting sucked up like Oreo did, oh well.

That's what I'm looking for, don't know if the connectors you mention would work.
For reference, here's my Ranchero's wiring,

Most of the connectors are there, but they're not connected.

That's actually really cool looking, not something I'd get I think, but really cool. Also very clear.

edit: I FOUND A PLACE THAT SELLS RANCHERO DOOR PANELS! SO MUCH SUCCESS!

A Subaru will be my first car that I own personally. My mom has a 2011 Outback and it is grand, I might actually get to call it 'mine' soon (or at least share it with my brother) if he goes to the same college I do and all goes well.

@sentinal - That connector looks like an older computer power supply motherboard plug or something similar. If the door panels don't work out (I see no reason why they wouldn't) I might dig into some old computers or find a computer repair place that might help you out.

We have a few old computers lying around, I'll see if I can't find something that might work. As for the door panels, it turns out that it's just the upholstery, but I may have found the solution in people selling Torino door panels on Ebay and not listing the Ranchero under the compatibility tabs.

I'm around. I check in daily but I rarely have anything to add to the conversations so I stay quiet.

In car related news: My car was hit while I was at a red light going to work. I am fine but my car is all beat up. The guy left before the cops came or I could get information so I am stuck putting it on my insurance to get fixed. I took my car in to get fixed yesterday and am now driving a rental. What did they give me? A Chevy Spark...

Glad you're alright, and :o)
